In England, stout has traditionally been a sweet black beer, often sweetened with lactose. In Ireland, stout has traditionally been dry. William's Stout is slightly sweeter than the famous Irish stout, yet drier than sweet English stouts. A potent stout with a creamy head, our stout derives its rich bittersweet flavor from a combination of a special dark extract, ale hops, and a liquid yeast with a somewhat dry character. A smooth black stout with a balanced character. Alcohol: 4.9%, IBU's 35.

Includes 8 lbs. of our blended malt extract, English fuggle and other hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of 1.050. Ease of Brewing: Beginner

This Must Not Be A Stout
This must not be a stout, because i don't like stouts. But i like this one!

As with all the William's kits: simple, straightforward, fabulous results. My bride's favorite is still the Belgian Double, but this one ranks a very close second.

Initial review 2015 December: update 2017 April. i have done 30 batches of home brew now, 6 batches of stout. This kit is my favorite stout: i ordered a kit from another distributor, and tried my own combination of ingredients. This kit has unmatched flavor, and if you add a pint of your favorite whisky just before bottling takes it from "A" to "A+". My bride's favorite is still a belgian. Mine is this kit with the whisky.

Smells yummy!
Bought for hubby and he's really looking forward to trying. Useful tip given on properly using the air bubbler on 5 gallon buckets.

Coffee Stout Spinoff
I used this kit as a base for a coffee stout. I used 5.5 oz of roasted barley for specialty grains before the boil (up to 165F). After a couple days in the fermenter I poured in cold brewed coffee that was made with 6 oz of ground Caribou coffee. This beer didn't only meet my expectations it exceeded them. The coffee notes and smooth William's Stout base were a match made in heaven.

Great First Beer
I knew very little about beer brewing and I brewed William's Stout as my first beer. I was surprised by how easy and fun it was. Beer came out great and has only gotten better with time.

Can you provide more details about the specific hops included (KCG050 & KCG100)? Looking for the variety and amount included.
KCG050 is 1/2 oz, East Kent Golding, KCG100 is 1 ounce East Kent Golding

are caps for bottling included
No, these must be bought separately.  Our item P70, 50 caps for $1.59 is the smallest amount we sell and will be good for a 5 gallon batch.
